Someone You Know is based on true events and tells the story of two women, Lindsay and Abbi, who survive sexual assault.
The ripple effect that follows this momentous event in each of their lives potentially holds the power to change their story forever. As they journey through shock, guilt, anger, and depression both women forge their way to the other side where they ultimately find acceptance, hope, and empowerment.
Someone You Know (formerly billed as “Survivor Story: A Workshop”) has completed multiple readings in Chicago, a fully staged workshop in Chicago in 2017, a second workshop performance at Eòlia Conservatory in Barcelona in 2018, and had select songs featured in a Domino Productions cabaret night in 2019 (Burbank, CA).
According to RAINN’s 2019 statistics- in every 73 seconds that passes, another American is sexually assaulted, but only 5 out of every 1,000 perpetrators are sentenced to time in prison. 1 out of every 6 American women has experienced an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime, and 90% of survivors of rape are female.
